Although the Industrial Museum has now become the new Museum of Bristol, there will be a continuing need for volunteers to work upon the exhibits. The steam tug `Mayflower’ is due for a major inspection and overhaul. Work is also starting on the next dock-side crane, No. 32, the 10 ton version. The `Railway Fleet’ (if that is the collective term) of locomotives and rolling stock will need continuing maintenance, particularly as the latter have to withstand the elements all year round.
Anyone with reasonable DIY skills will be most welcome, particularly experienced woodworkers and trained electricians who learned their trade when components were a lot more substantial than today’s miniaturised electronic devices.
